Rumour: Samsung Has Settled on 2K (Not 4K) For the Galaxy S6

By Gerald Lynch on at

It may be making 4K displays for the Oculus Rift, but it seems Samsung won't be equipping it's next flagship Galaxy S6 handset with the pixel-dense screens. Code uncovered by Dutch site TechTastic suggests that Samsung will be running with a 2K QHD (1440 x 2560) display instead.

The site found the User Agent Profile for a device with a model number SM-G920A, which is expected to be the AT&T S6 stateside. The User Agent Profile tells a website how it should present itself on different devices, with TechTastic finding code relating to a 1440 x 2560 resolution display. The code also seems to confirm that Samsung will be using a 64-bit processor in the phone, as well as sticking with a physical home button.

That's not to say there isn't still a chance for a 4K Galaxy S6 though! Some sources have suggested there may be two Galaxy S6 models launching, with one potentially having a wraparound curved display. Perhaps that will make use of a 4K display, if the rumour proves true.
